This very rare English sea chart was possibly first published in Mount and Page’s ‘English Pilot Third Part’ covering the Mediterranean Sea from 1736. This example was issued in 1747. It focuses on the Mediterranean islands of Corsica and Sardinia and draws on the cartography of Henri Michelot and Laurent Bremond as stated in the title. Michelot was a hydrographer and pilot and Bremond a hydrographer, both at Marseilles. They worked together on ‘Recueil de plusiers Plans des ports et Rades de la Mer Mediterranee’ published in Marseilles 1721. NMM 425 no. 150?; Shirley ‘Atlases in the BL’ M.M&P 7c no. 11.
